Mr. Sardonicus / The Brotherhood of Satan Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Mr. Sardonicus
Score: 4.0/5/0


The black-and-white Mr. Sardonicus doesn't represent the finest in colorless Blu-ray goodness, but the transfer is surprisingly stout and probably better than what fans might have reasonably expected of an old title on budget Blu-ray. It doesn't start too promisingly, though, showing some pale blacks and poor gradation between shades of gray, resulting in some blocky, clumpy backdrops in the London exteriors. Once the action shifts to Dr. Cargrave's office, it tightens up nicely and hardly ever lets up, save for a few more unsightly outdoor shots. The image proves very stable and nicely defined, whether primary elements, such as character and clothing details, or background elements that retain a sharpness and accuracy all around the frame. The interior of the Sardonicus mansion is also prime real estate for picturesque details; both the open, inviting, nicely appointed living areas and the grimy, rougher textured "torture chamber" area both reveal excellent details. The transfer also shows off the well done and largely seamless Sardonicus makeup, a real pleasure in those shots in which it's visible for more than a second or so of screen time. Generally, the print looks clean, with light grain intact. However sporadic pops and speckles do appear, usually infrequently but spiking occasionally. All in all, this is a solid presentation from Mill Creek.

The Brotherhood of Satan
Score: 4.0/5/0


Mill Creek's high definition presentation of The Brotherhood of Satan is the unequivocal highlight of the release. While certainly not a perfect, stunning transfer, it's certainly balanced and handsome, film-like and with only a few forgivable flaws. Light grain remains over the top and aids in creating a pleasing, albeit basic, film texturing. That's not to mention the absence of significant scrubbing, which leaves the film's rather nice details intact. This is a sharp, usually well-defined image that shows everything from cracked paint and concrete down vegetation and terrain with ease. Facial and clothing details, too, are completely satisfying. Colors are fine, not particularly vibrant but not dulled, either. There's a nice middle ground here that displays a wide palette with no bleeding or any sense of artificialness about it. Black levels and flesh tones are fine. There are some sporadic white speckles, but nothing too concerning. Given the low budget nature of the film, its age, and the Blu-ray disc's status as a bargain release, this is just about a best-case scenario for the film under the circumstances.


Mr. Sardonicus / The Brotherhood of Satan Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

Mr. Sardonicus
Score: 2.5/5/0


Mr. Sardonicus features a terribly bland DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 lossless soundtrack that should be the poster child for "lifeless." Certainly this is no multi-million dollar production with A-grade sound design, so the boring presentation can certainly be understood in context. It's puny and utterly unconvincing at all times, save for dialogue. The spoken word comes through with commendable evenness and accuracy, but forget much of anything more. Music plays with no range beyond the center, ditto any of the few sound effects scattered throughout, such as a ringing bell on a ship and a "rumbling" locomotive that ambles "through" the stage. There's no clarity or oomph to any of the effects, and combined with zero range, the net result is a boring listen but one that doesn't really impede one's ability to enjoy the film, either.

The Brotherhood of Satan
Score: 2.0/5/0


The Brotherhood of Satan features a terribly bland and front-center dominant DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 lossless soundtrack. The weakness is evident from the start as the tank "rumbles" over the car with the sonic force of a fuzzy radio station barely coming in at low volume. The track makes use of the bare minimum in clarity and power and often sounds detached from the film. Whether big, should-be aggressive sounds like that tank or light ambience like a small crackling fire, there's no life, minimal presence, and only the basic sound signature of most every sound element. Dialogue is uneven and clunky, though generally more focused and clear than any surrounding sound elements. Nevertheless, the din of screaming children at a birthday party or an angry mob later in the movie come across as disjointed and lacking anything resembling reality. The track does find the rare moment when things nearly pass for acceptable; distant thunder and buzzing insects in the background of a scene in chapter four don't sound awful, at least in context. Then again, more dominant thunder comes across almost digitally, with no sense of accuracy. This is a completely forgettable track, though certainly attached to a movie that probably didn't enjoy top-notch sound engineering to begin with, anyway.
